A nice basswood near Omaha

Post by Jess Riddle » Sun Nov 03, 2013 7:00 pm


I was driving through the suburbs of Omaha recently, and saw this basswood.
13.3’ x 86.5’, the tree grows in Washington Park in Bellevue, NE. At the time, I was in a rush and just assumed it was American basswood without looking closely, but all the American basswoods in the surrounding forests had already dropped their leaves. It could still be an American from much farther south, but the leaves look rather small.

I also almost wrecked my car in a different suburb when I saw what looked like a 15’ cbh pin oak in someone’s front yard. I later found out the tree is the state champion and listed at 15’2”.
